Judy Phillips Necklace and her sculpting

I have a very sweet friend who  belongs to our Arizona Polymer Clay Guild.  Her name is Judy Phillips.  She has more talent in one finger than most people do in their whole body.  If you don't believe me, check out the native sculpture above.  Judy does polymer clay sculpting and most of her work is of Native Americans.  She uses many different mediums when she does her sculpting besides clay.  I've seen her put pieces of plants and trees and bushes and feathers in her sculpting.  I was so happy she did some cats a few months ago.  As you know I'm a cat person.  Judy also does nail files that she sculpts people on and they are gorgeous.  I'll post some of them as soon as I get Judy's permission.  This post is because of the necklace that you see pictured above.  I made this from Studio by Sculpey clay and wore it to a meeting one day and Judy raved about it and asked me to make her one.  Well, I decided to just give her this one and I made her some matching earrings and I thought I took pictures of those but can't find them (senior moment).  I was so happy that Judy finally wanted something that I made.  It was a feather in my cap.  Judy doesn't wear a lot of jewelry so this really excited me and I made her promise to wear it to the next meeting.  I made myself two more necklaces like this but they never come out the same.  IT'S GOOD NOT TO BE THE SAME.  Thank you Judy.

The necklace is beautiful and I know that Judy was thrilled. I would be.
Thanks for sharing her work.


Thanks Alice, Judy called and was really excited. I can't wait to see her in it.

I will have to post more of Judy's stuff. She is really talented.

Thanks for the comment. I look at your work every day.
